    A Trump supporter tried disrupting a performance of the Robert De Niro-directed “A Bronx Tale: The Musical” on Saturday — standing up during the curtain call and displaying a “Keep America Great!” flag toward the audience. “The times we live in,” tweeted audience member Joe Del Vicario, along with a pic showing the Broadway protest. “At the end of [the performance], a man turned around and faced the audience to show us how big of a pair he has,” Del Vicario explained. “He was escorted shortly after.” Several people in attendance took to social media to document what happened Saturday...

    People who are light-sensitive or epileptic began warning other film-goers on social media. There is a strobe-light sequence in the picture that apparently caused some people to become nauseous. Disney/Pixar believe the problem was serious enough to ask theaters to start posting signs warning about the sequence People tweeted that the strobe effects the villain uses left them nauseous or worse — gave them a seizure “So as a result, I walked out of the theater with a migraine,” said blogger Veronica Lewis. That’s why Lewis took to twitter in a thread that’s now gone viral asking Disney & Pixar...

'No accident, out of the blue, in traffic on Santa Monica Blvd. Thank you to the kind couple who flagged him down and told him to pull over. And thank god my three little girls weren’t in the car with him,' continued McCormack, best...

    Tough-talking actor Samuel L. Jackson wished President Donald Trump a happy birthday on Friday, but the Twitterverse took exception to the perceived anti-gay slurs in the message and laid their vengeance upon him. Jackson’s tweet: “Must have been a party at The White House, Mitch, Paul, Rudy & others were spotted wearing knee pads & carrying these lined up outside. Happy Birthday.” The tweet included an image of a product called “After Dick Mints” with the tagline “Going down?” One Twitter user asked, “Did you and Joy Reid get hacked by the same person?” The reference is to the MSNBC...

    Personally, I can't wait to see the ads of "Punchy's" tantrum in the upcoming midterm races! They ought to be worth millions of votes I remember as a young teenager going by myself to see “On the Waterfront” at the Whalley Theater in New Haven. I was so mesmerized by the performance of Marlon Brando (30-years old at the time) that it took a dozen more viewings—really, that’s how many times I saw the film, maybe more—before I realized that the greatest actors of the day—Eva Marie Saint, Karl Malden, Lee J. Cobb, Rod Steiger—were also featured in the movie....

    With more millions than she and her Oscar-winning husband Michael Douglas can spend and more homes than they could ever live in, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones says she’s “sick” of apologizing for being filthy rich. “One thing I’m not is humble anymore. I’m sick of being humble. I really am,” Zeta-Jones said in an interview with British the newspaper The Daily Mirror. “So sorry I’m rich, so sorry I’m married to a movie star, so sorry I’m not so bad looking.”“No sorrys. Enough. All that is important to me now is my work,” the Feud star continued. “[The] rest of...

    Aviva Drescher, who starred on Seasons 5 and 6 of “Real Housewives of New York,” said the show’s production team could sometimes go too far with their eagerness to liquor up the cast. She recalled the time a producer phoned ahead of filming and asked her to take a shot of alcohol with castmate Ramona Singer during a reconciliation scene at a restaurant. “I told the head producer, ‘I don’t want to do a shot. Can you just fill it with water?’ ” said Drescher, 47, who grew up with an alcoholic mother and says she had never taken a shot...

    Her name is Monroe Christine. She is twenty months old. She was born on television. You see, Monroe belongs to a reality television star and his partner—Jeff Lewis and Gage Edwards of Bravo’s Flipping Out. Her conception, gestation, and birth were part of the drama of the show, and now her parties and wardrobe and babbling continue to be part of the show. The men will not do business with the woman who gave birth to Monroe ever again. Her name is Alexandra Trent, and she’s suing the men and Bravo. As part of the transaction, Alexandra agreed to have...

    Rob Reiner, a director and longtime advocate for liberal Democratic causes in Hollywood, ripped into Robert De Niro for his “F— Trump” outburst at last Sunday’s Tony Awards, calling the foul-mouthed speech counterproductive. “If you have any interest in trying to preserve the democracy, and put it in the hands of somebody who understands government, who isn’t self-dealing, who cares about this country and the people in this country, then you’re helping Trump,” Reiner said in an interview earlier this week on The Hill’s “Rising” TV show with co-hosts Krystal Ball and Buck Sexton. “You’re helping Trump by saying ‘F—...

    After Star Wars author Chuck Wendig called Star Wars fans white supremacists and The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson referred to them as manbabies, Star Wars author Paul Kemp believes certain Star Wars fans are “detestable.” Kemp has written a number of Star Wars novels including Lords of the Sith, Star Wars: The Old Republic – Deceived, Crosscurrent, Riptide, and more.

    4th Update, Saturday AM after midnight post: Refresh for updates Incredibles 2 isn’t just a sequel to an animated film, it’s a sequel to an A+ four-quad movie and it’s acting like the latter pulling in everyone, largely adults with general audiences accounting for 57% of the audience. Note that parents are only repping 12% of the crowd per PostTrak with 31% kids. In the middle of the night we were spotting that Incredibles 2 was clicking to $175.3M and there’s a very good shot this all-audience pic is flying to $180M+. That figure alone is close to 70% of...

    Feminists who embrace the "right" to abortion -- the right to destroy an unborn life on a woman's demand at any point in pregnancy -- just will not accept they are powerful enough in Hollywood. Abortion scenes in TV and movies need to be more "educational" and end the "stigma" of violence against unborn babies, such as being torn to pieces and feeling the pain of being chemically burned to pieces. Both things have been proved true after the 20-week period, yet it remains a "stigma" against their mothers.This lecture came again during a recent panel discussion at the ATX...

    Ron Howard has one question on his mind, and it has nothing to with his latest film, “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” “Honest question to #MAGA minders,” the 64-year-old tweeted Thursday. “When was America at its greatest? Can you tell me an era that reflects the ‘Again’ that you hope to return to?” The Oscar-winning filmmaker and former “Happy Days” actor quickly started a conversation with users who had different opinions of President Trump’s famous slogan.

    Actress and political activist Jane Fonda warned a crowd of Hollywood elites of the “existential crisis” facing America under the Trump administration, urging them that the only solution is “taking back our government.” After winning the Female EMA Lifetime Achievement Award at the Environmental Media Association (EMA) first Honors Benefit Gala, Fonda said that Democrats taking the House in the upcoming mid-terms elections was crucial to saving the country. “This is an existential crisis that we’re in,” said the 80-year-old Grace and Frankie star. “We have to do everything we can to take back the house in November.

    Disney is selling the longtime headquarters of ABC News, which occupies a prestigious piece of New York City real estate. ... The sale is raising new questions about the future of Disney’s troubled news operation. Once-vaunted ABC News has struggled for identity in recent years, as the TV news spotlight has shifted to cable and the internet. And ABC News' notable shift away from hard news coverage, perhaps in search of viewers, has reduced its relevance in the news ecosystem ... as Disney executives voice increasing frustration with the high costs and low returns of the news operation. ...

    The only way to send the pretenders a message is to stop watching their movies and avoid watching any self aggrandizing awards shows - like the Tony Awards. Who needs actors anyway? While leftists applaud De Niro, the Raging Bulls__t, for his foul mouthed remarks and idiotic gestures at the egomaniacal Tony Awards, those of us with a sense of decency wonder what happened to the entertainment industries’ integrity. I just don’t think a respectable person would have gotten up in front of a world audience and muttered such idiotic filth. By the same token, I don’t think a respectable...

    When in doubt, the Dems go to Hollywood. That's where so much of their cash and cultural cachet comes from. The only problem with that plan is seriously thinking that Hollywood can help you connect with the rest of the country. DNC Chairman Tom Perez, several House members and other top elected officials have already met with the group, formed by members of the entertainment industry in the wake of the 2016 election, that participants liken to a TV writers’ room, complete with producers of such programs as “Veep.” Nothing like a widely popular program watched across the country to...
